Where To Find Dog-Friendly Workplaces

15th Sep 2022

Post the Covid-19 pandemic, dog-friendly workplaces have been on the rise, with more and more companies adapting their work environments to accommodate our four-legged friends. 

As we know there are many benefits to having pets/dogs in the workplace; they help to combat and alleviate symptoms of stress, anxiety and loneliness. For employers, we have previously written about the top tips for creating a dog-friendly environment, which you might also want to check out. 

Which companies are dog-friendly?

There are plenty of dog-friendly companies out there, but knowing who they are and where to find them was once difficult, but not anymore 👀 

We’ll be sharing the spotlight on some dog-friendly companies; they might be currently hiring or soon be hiring for the job of your dreams. And, not only are these companies dog-friendly, but they are also Flexified, which means they are verified as truly flexible places to work

BOOM

BOOM is working to transform the world of visual content management through technology and re-writing the status quo in their industry to redefine what defines company culture and ‘typical’ ways of working. Let’s hear from BOOM themselves:

“At BOOM, we give employees 2 days of Pawternity leave per year. Being a fully remote company, one of our key principles is empowering individuals to be autonomous in making personal decisions which means they have a good work-life balance, and we quickly identified that pets formed a huge part of this!

One of our most popular slack channels is #monsters-of-boom where our tribe of pet lovers share pictures of their furry friends, providing everyone with snippets of joy throughout the day and plenty of laughs. For us, Pawternity leave was about recognising the role pets play in our employees’ lives and providing them with the resources and time they need to care for them”
